Christmas market???????????? Helpers wanted! ????????????

We are looking for volunteers who have time to help with our Christmas market on December 3rd and/or 10th. Setting up, clean up, catering, selling Christmas items, selling alcohol (RSA certificate required), and so on. We need you! Please contact Ann-Kristin by email if you can be there.
Donations needed for raffle!

Unlike in Germany, our church is self-financed and therefore dependent on fundraising. The Christmas market and the raffle are a good opportunity to support financing for our activities next year. That’s why we’re asking for donations in kind for the raffle.
Maybe you work at a pharmacy, in retail, a drugstore, … or or or and have the opportunity to ask for donations of any kind for our raffle in stores in your area? Jam, chutneys, cookies, wine, anything you can turn into a hamper is more than welcome. If you can help us with donations, please drop them off in the church hall after the service or contact Kim or the office. Thank you!

Singen ist gut für die Seele! 
Für unseren kleinen deutschen Chor “Immergrün” suchen wir noch Sopranistinnen! Wir treffen uns alle 14 Tage am Donnerstag um die Mittagszeit privat in der Bayside Area. Kurz vor unseren Aufführungen zum Muttertag, Reformationsfest und vor den Weihnachtsfeiern üben wir 1 x pro Woche. Für Sängerinnen, die tagsüber keine Zeit haben, organisieren wir gelegentlich eine Abendprobe.
Chorerfahrung wäre wünschenswert, ist aber nicht zwingend erforderlich. Unser Frauenchor singt zweistimmig, manchmal auch dreistimmig.
Solltet ihr Lust haben bei uns mitzusingen und möchtet mehr Details erfahren, meldet euch bitte bei:
